Stress & Coping During COVID-19

The outbreak of the corona virus, known as COVID-19, may be stressful for people of all ages. Fear, anxiety, and uncertainty are all natural reactions. When these feelings become overwhelming, they can cause strong emotions in adolescents, adults, and senior adults. Learning how to manage this stress will make you, those you care about, and our community stronger.

Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital specializes in the treatment of these strong emotions. Whether receiving care in our inpatient or outpatient programs, our clinicians utilize evidence-based treatment models to ensure you or your loved ones, are prepared to cope.

Common signs of stress during a pandemic include:

  • Changes in eating or sleep patterns
  • Difficulty concentrating
  • Worsening of chronic health concerns
  • Worry about your own health and the health of your loved ones
  • Increased use of alcohol, drugs, or tobacco

Those who have existing mental health concerns are at an elevated risk for a crisis. Recognizing these signs and symptoms is critical in ensuring someone gets the help they need in a timely manner.

Silver Oaks Behavioral Hospital is open and accepting patients into all levels of care. We take the health and safety of our patients, their families, and our staff very seriously and we have implemented all screening guidelines provided by the CDC and local health officials.

We now offer telehealth assessments and Intensive Outpatient services online. For more information or to schedule an appointment, please call (844) 580-5000.
